Sandy stitched these two beautiful ornaments. They are needle roll ornaments and are so, so pretty. She has some pulled work on them, beadwork and a Rhodes butterfly on one and a Rhodes heart on the other. She did them in memory of some family members and added that to the back. She did the pink one for her grandmother and the other one for her father and father in law. I think it is precious how she put the wording on the ornament. Thanks so much for you help in this.

What is stitching for a cure? It started as a year long project to help save lives. We were stitching ornaments that decorated a tree that was raffled off on Thanksgiving 2009. The money raised went to American Cancer Society.
We have raised over $1000 with that project. We went on in 2010 to stitch quilt blocks and to make 3 quilts. Those quilts raised over $2000. Amazing. My focus has turned to a new cause. Juvenile Diabetes. I am not sure what our next project will be, but I am sure that our stitching will play a big part in this adventure. Come join us by stitching or simply following us on our journey!
I hope to educate anyone reading this blog on Juvenile Diabetes. But mostly, we want to stitch for a cure!
